Research and Teaching Interests

My research group studies a wide variety of materials, primarily using solid-state NMR.

Current materials we are working on include resilin, an outstanding rubber protein from insects, electrospun spider silk, nano-crystalline cellulose, and polypyrrole, a conducting polymer.

We also work on NMR methods development.

I am actively recruiting new graduate students.
